Ophir Energy plc has announced the award of the midstream construction contracts for the Fortuna FLNG project.
Golar LNG Ltd has executed amended and novated agreements for conversion of the Gandria LNG carrier to a FLNG facility.
The primary contract for the FLNG Gandria was entered into with Keppel Shipyard Ltd. Black & Veatch will provide its PRICO® technology, perform detailed engineering and process design, specify and procure topside equipment, and provide commissioning support for the FLNG topsides and liquefaction process.
The Gandria vessel will be acquired by the Fortuna Joint Operating Company upon reaching the planned final investment decision (FID) in mid-2017. The Republic of Equatorial Guinea has the right to acquire up to 30% of the vessel.
Nick Cooper, CEO of Ophir Energy, said: “The award of the midstream construction completes another milestone as we approach FID. We remain firmly on schedule for the FID of Africa’s first deep water FLNG Project in mid-2017.”
The award of the midstream construction contracts follows the recent announcement that the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, Ophir Holdings & Ventures Ltd (a subsidiary of Ophir Energy), OneLNGSA and La Compañía Nacional De Petróleos De Guinea Ecuatorial (GEPetrol) have signed a detailed Umbrella Agreement (UA) to establish the legal and fiscal framework for the Fortuna FLNG project.
